Happy New Year!

Today is the first day of the rest of 2014. 

I want to get back to blogging because there is something therapeutic about it. I feel the need to share those things in my life that will just maybe help someone.For instance, if you are into making smoothies I will have some recipes to share. Today I did this:

2 ripe bananas
I can pineapple chunks 
I can mandarin oranges 
(I only drain the canned  fruit if in light syrup. Otherwise if it is packed in juice i pour it all in)
1 huge handful of greens, (spinach mixture in a bag)
Blend on high for a minute.

This is so good!  I was glad I had it in the frig when I was craving something sweet.

Remember, prayer changes things.

Welcome to my blog. You may be familiar with my blog, or just visiting for the first time. Actually, I have not been here for a while myself, but decided it is time to do some updating. 

My home has been keeping me quite distracted from sewing projects these past few months. There is lots to share, but today I am concentrating on sharing the latest news from the sewing room, my favorite part of  VictoriaLynn's Creation Space. 

My creations were discovered on Etsy by a budding local entrepreneur, Magic City Creations, in Barberton, Ohio and I was invited to place my items in their Cafe and Craftery which serves up the most delicious coffee, muffins, and yummy cupcakes! They have beautiful items, like jewelry, handmade bags, candles, crochet items, homemade soap,  and are getting new items daily. So this new venture has  re-ignited my excitement to get going and start sewing. I am now in the process of creating large tote bags and more drawstring backpacks. 

Now available  at the Magic City Creations Cafe and Craftery.

This backpack, with colorful worms, will be a hit with the young and young-at-heart,

I have been taking a break from homeownership for about six years now, and am now so thrilled at the opportunity to fix up and decorate this wonderful little fixer-upper in the in the heart of my home town.  This property has been vacant for quite awhile, and like all the vacant homes that sit there unloved and unattended, it has been vandalized more than once. All plumbing is now PVC where copper used to be.

In order to discourage intruders, I had glass block windows installed, security lighting, and am re enforcing doors, windows and  locks.

The kitchen is my favorite room of the house in any place that I live, so therefore I have been concentrating my efforts on a slight upgrade, by removing wallpaper, applying a fresh coat of paint and sewing new curtains.  I thought I wanted yellow on the walls, but once I had a section covered, I changed my mind and decided to do all the walls white, and use the yellow paint to paint the chair rail.

Here are the curtains, which have bright yellow tulips.

The yellow was too much, so was getting covered with bright white. I am actually thinking now that the white is too bright, and I need to apply an off white and save the bright white for just the cabinets.

The chair rail will get a new coating of yellow, to coordinate with the curtains.

Looking forward to the "after" pics!! Oh the pedestal sink will need to find a new home....

            I moved it out of the way to make room for a new vanity/sink combo...

Shower/tub also needs attention...needing a new faucet and shower fittings.

Check back for updates....Thanks for visiting!! I look forward to your next visit!
God Bless You!

It has been an absolutely beautiful spring here in Northeast Ohio. My tomato plants are growing beyond my greatest expectations.  My flower garden is mulched. 

Now I am checking in here to share my facebook page, and to share the opportunity for a chance for you to win my latest creativity project, a beautiful red and gold macrame plant hanger made by yours truly in a revival of a past love, my love for macrame.
Just visit and LiKe my page at https://www.facebook.com/#!/VictoriaLynnFHG  and you will be entered in a drawing for the red and gold plant hanger. It will hold a generous size pot or basket and is a completed length of 54".


I pray you are full of joy in our Lord-

My New Adventures In Gardening

My New Experiment in Upside Down Gardening

I got a funny look from the cashier when I went into the grocery store just to buy  two shopping bags. I was too excited about the idea of using them for gardening upside down to think about getting any groceries I might need. And I was under a time crunch since I have to go to work this afternoon. I wanted to get this started and see if it actually was possible to get the plant through a small hole in the bottom, and I wanted to do this before the plant got too much bigger. So here is the beginning of my experiment. More soil can be added, (I ran out) so I can put some small herbs in the top.  I look forward to seeing how this works and sharing my results in the coming weeks. 

I pray that God Blesses everyone who visits this little cyber corner of my world, with smiles, sunshine and laughter. 
Peace of the Lord Jesus be with you!
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning."
Gen 1:1-2
